WHAT IS FURNITURE REMOVAL?
Answer: Furniture removal is the transfer of furniture from one location to another.
A moving company, removalist, or van line is a company that helps people and businesses move their goods from one place to another. It offers all-inclusive services for relocations like packing, loading, moving, unloading, unpacking, arranging of items to be shifted.
There are multiple options when it comes to hiring a company for furnishing removal: if you’re looking to hold an event and don’t have access to a large enough vehicle, we recommend booking a van with lots of lift space. If you’re moving into an apartment or working in smaller spaces, then we recommend hiring hand-trucks that will allow your movers to set up dollies for each heavy item. And lastly, if you live in close distance and need help moving down-stairs such as from one floor down then leasing stairs can be a cost-effective way of managing the need while keeping the workload manageable.
HOW TO START A MOVING COMPANY BUSINESS?
- Decide where to start, for example, you might choose a city based on population size and geography
- Get business licenses and permits such as public storage permits, short-term rental permits, moving company licenses, or truck registration
- Post ads in Facebook Marketplace
- Arrange pre-employment screening using employment verification sites like Onfido to avoid negligent hiring lawsuits
- Develop your pricing structures and move inventory to buy boxes and supplies for your customers before taking jobs through direct marketing.
- Offer complementary services such as carpet cleaning every time they do an office move so you show up with a clean carpet remnant at the end of the job which could be sold at no extra cost.
WHAT IS THE AVERAGE COST OF FURNITURE REMOVAL?
The cost of furniture removal ranges from R3500 to over R8000 depending on the size and weight of the items, as well as additional factors such as the time it would take to do the job. The price also varies due to location, which is another factor in determining how much a job costs because distance often doubles or triples a fee. In general, local moves are cheaper than long-distance moves because there is no mileage charge or any gas expenses associated with a move that’s done locally between two points nearby by ground transportation only. Additionally, moving rather than driving saves wear and tear on an axle and brakes – safety features that need replacement periodically which takes more money out of pocket unless covered by insurance or an employment agreement.
Answer: There are two paths you can take to find furniture removal companies near you.
The first is to go onto sites like Yelp or Google and search for the nearest business that meets your needs, ideally one that has multiple reviews.
The second is to contact the company’s customer service department if they have one. They should be able to provide you with a list of out-of-state locations where they offer their services.
